Casper Plows Push Snow to Street Sides During Spring
With an early spring storm forecast to drop between four and eight inches of snow on central Wyoming on Friday, the City of Casper wants to remind residents of its spring snow removal policy, according to a news release.
"Snow that falls after March 15th and accumulates less than four inches is plowed to the side of the street and allowed to melt instead of being plowed into windrows and collected," streets manager Shad Rodgers said.
During winter storms with heavy snowfall, such as the one on March 13 that shut down much of the city, plows push the snow to the middle of the streets.
That method changes as warmer weather arrives, and that also depends on the amount of snowfall.
"Regardless of method, city plows will continue to work to make sure that arterial and collector streets have been plowed and are passable during all spring storms," Rodgers said.
